Tips to keep your Invisalign retainers clean

The Four Simple Steps You Need to Take in Order to Keep Your Invisalign Retainers Clean

Since early 2000s, orthodontists have had success utilising Invisalign to straighten out patients’ teeth by having them wear a series of aligners made of clear plastic.

This method requires patients to continuously wear the aligners during the course of their treatment. As you move through the sequence of aligners, each successive one will have a degree of restriction that is marginally greater than that of the one that came before it.

At each session, the friendly dentists here at Evergreen will evaluate the condition of your teeth and make any necessary adjustments.

Move them to the side carefully!

Brush your clear aligners in the same way that you would brush your natural teeth in order to maintain them germ-free and clean. After getting out of bed in the morning and again just before going to bed at night, you should always clean your teeth.

Always remember to clean your aligners before inserting them, or at the absolute least, give them a thorough rinse with water. If you forget to clean them, at the very least give them a good rinsing with water.  Make use of a toothbrush that has gentle bristles, together with water and a very small amount of toothpaste. It is recommended that you give brushing your aligners while they are still on your teeth a try before removing them to clean the interior of the aligners because it may be more convenient.

Denture cleansers are NOT appropriate for use when cleaning aligners. Do not place them in a solution designed to be used as mouthwash. Using these objects may cause the aligner’s surface to become dull, which will draw greater attention to it.

Teeth should be thoroughly cleaned prior to inserting aligners.

After pulling your aligners out to eat or drink, you should always wash your teeth thoroughly before inserting them back into your mouth. You run the risk of having foul breath and maybe harming your teeth if you put your aligners back on over the food and bacteria that is now attached to your teeth.

In the event that you are unable to immediately brush your teeth, you should gargle with water before putting your aligner back in your mouth. Brush your teeth as soon as possible after each meal if at all possible.

Place them in a safe and secure location.

We’ve heard horrifying accounts of family pets utilising orthodontic aligners as chew toys, which is another compelling argument in favour of putting your aligners away whenever you eat or drink. When you take out your aligners and leave them on the table, you run the risk of bacteria growing on the device, which can then be transferred to your mouth when you put the aligner back in. When you take your aligners out of your mouth, you should always rinse them in water and then either put them in a glass of water or a special case to keep them clean until it is time to put them back in your mouth.

Avoid certain food and drinks at all costs.

Even though they are transparent, clear braces can nevertheless become discoloured. Coffee, cola, tea, and red wine are just some of the beverages that have the potential to stain aligners. Take them out of the way so you can get something to eat or drink.


You’ll be able to straighten your teeth with the help of Invisalign without having to sacrifice too much of your packed schedule. In order to attain the smile of your dreams, you no longer need to worry about having to wear ugly metal brackets and wires. If you take proper care of your aligners, you will be able to accomplish more with them in less time and obtain the outcomes you want.
